Im a pretty big fan of this case but I cannot fit my Radeon HD 6990 in it thanks to the Hard Drive Rack in there but looking at Rocker 69s mod of the case is it safe to assume that I can remove it and replace it with a smaller one? It makes me sad that I have a 700$ card sitting in a box on my desk but I sure as hell dont wanna get rid of my scout case.

Read further back and saw the full post. So he sawed the thing off. is there any other way to remove the hard drive cage? I currently don't have access to any small saws like that.

You can drill out the rivets.

all you have to do is drill out the 8 total rivets that hold the HD cage in(4 top 4 bottom), then simply cut the bottom off the case, bend a new tab, drill a hole and re-mount. its really simple. I have modded 2 scouts, 1 i actually cut into the HD tray and removed about an inch and a half out of it so my card just slid right into place. Good luck...dont let that card sit on your desk any longer, get to cutting!!!!

Do I really need a drill or can I just painstakingly screwdriver em out with my hands. I suppose I can just borrow a drill from work but those things are covered with asphalt ( yay roofing and sheet metal )

You can also knock them off with a sharp chisel and hammer

If you're embarking on a quest to find and conquer the dremel, then by all means defeat his sidekick, the diamond cutting wheel, as well. For in him truly lies your victory does.
